No, I'm not British...I just thought Bog Roll sounded more enchanted then toilet paper roll.  I made this pencil holder for fancybutch in the recent Enchanted Forest Swap.  All it requires to make it is the TP roll, hot glue, paint, glaze, some extra bits of stiff paper, and a face mold...



I started by hot gluing the TP roll to the stiff paper.  You want a piece quit a bit bigger than the TP roll so you have room to make roots.  Then just keep building up the hot glue.  I used bits of the paper to fill in the roots and make them join to the stump up higher.  I also did some of the bark at this time.  Once my glue gun got super hot, it was too runny to be much good for bark, so I got out my face mold (sold to use with FIMO) and used the super hot glue to make the face.  Once I filled the mold, I stuck it into the frig to help it to completely cool the mold faster.  I let it cool for several hours.  It has to be totally hard, or it would distort if you try to remove it.  Once cool, heat up your gun again and stick it where you want.  I also did more bark work then too.  After it is all hard, cut off the paper bottom that didn't become the root system.  After that, just start painting.  I think I used 4 different coats of paint to get the depth I was looking for.  Then I glazed it and I chose to glue felt to the bottom, just so it looked more finished..


The little Ent looked a bit lonely, so when I found this little crow bead, I decided it wanted to live with the Ent Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

You have definitely taken the humble TP roll to a higher purpose...I love this!

I just found a cool Japanese crafting site that calls them POOPer Roll crafts...how funny is that? Grin

Love how you are teaching me more about the hot glue gun...very creative, as usual!

Stumpy is so funny! But wait a minute- does it glow in the dark? That would be awesome for finding one's pencils when one wakes up from a creative dream in the middle of the night and needs to sketch it before it flows away  Grin Grin

*SMACKS palm to forehead*  I must have been feverish!  No, it doesn't glow...what was I thinking??  But you are right BBB, that would have made it all the better.  Some kind of glowing moss sort of thing Grin

Thanks LimeR.  The secret to the glazed look is the stuff I coated it with.  I just went to get the name and it seems I have misplaced it in the mad laboratory organizing I've doing recently....It's like triple thick, or ultra thick...if I find it again I'll post it Grin

I would never have guessed it was a TP roll - and yes, I like bog roll much more - sounds more poetic.  I would have also thought you spent hours on hours making that out of paper mache, paper clay, or making it out of polymer clay or resin clay - love that it is layers of paper and glue gun glue.  It looks fantastic!  What did you clear coat it with?

Fabo upcycling, suereal! I can't believe it began as a TP Roll (that's going to be my DJ name if ever I have a crisis of sorts) and some hot glue! You're amazing.
